What do you want to do with your pool?
If you plan to do laps or want the whole family to be able to get wet together, then a pool is probably the best option.

If it’s just the two of you and you just want something cool to get into to take off the summer heat, then a spa may be more economical. Spas though can more be therapeutic with massaging jets.

How much space do you have?
This is a big determining factor in what you are actually able to install. If you have a very tiny backyard with limited space, then a spa is probably the more logical choice.

If you have a larger backyard with ample space, then a pool installation may be more suitable.

What is your budget?
Probably the biggest factor when thinking about a pool or spa. Obviously a pool is a lot larger than a spa so is more expensive to install, clean and maintain.
Do you want to use it year round?

Traditionally a spa was able to be used year round as it they are generally heated but modern pools can be heated as well with solar panels.
